The organizers of ‘Art Under Glass,’ the display of art work in vacant downtown Evanston shop windows, are holding a reception tonight to unveil a new round of displays and an expansion of the project.

The reception is being held from 5 to 7 p.m. in the lobby of the 708 Church St. building.

New displays in the 1600 block of Orrington Avenue and 700 block of Church Street, where the project got its start include works from Jill Birschbach, Helga Dangel, Melanie Deal, Janet Doroba, Steve Hamann, Heather Hancock, Esther M. Williams-Hays, Chris Heisinger and Dino Robinson.

In the new display space at 1508 Maple Ave., just south of Davis Street, are works from Patrick Linehan, Michael Loewenstein, John Macsai and Amy Woodbury.

‘Art Under Glass’ was launched in June as a joint project of the Arts & Business Committee of the Evanston Arts Council and EVMark, the downtown marketing organization, that showcases the artwork of local artists and brings life and energy to unoccupied retail spaces.
